Setting Yourself Apart
Once you graduate from MSU, you will have a quality degree from a quality institution, but so will many others who are looking for jobs. In order to succeed, you need to set yourself apart, and the Department of Agricultural Sciences at MSU will help you do just that. MSU offers a combination of course work, hands-on experiential learning opportunities, internships and co-ops, along with opportunities to learn valuable leadership skills through involvement in a number of student organizations. You will receive guidance from faculty members and advisors who are dedicated to your success. Not only will they help you select classes, but they will also help you find internship and scholarship opportunities. As you near the end of your studies, faculty members can provide references for jobs and internships. The knowledge, skills, guidance and personal, one-on-one attention you’ll receive at MSU will give you an advantage as you enter an increasingly competitive job market.
MSU offers two-year and four-year degrees in Veterinary Technology, a program offered at few other Universities in the region. The programs are accredited by the American Veterinary Medicine Association (AVMA), and the University has partnerships with several veterinarians in the region to help you with job placement after you graduate. While you work toward your degree, you will receive hands-on experience in fully-functional small animal and equine clinics, located at the Derrickson Agricultural Complex.
The Derrickson Agricultural Complex not only serves MSU agricultural sciences students, but the entire student body as well, thanks to a partnership with Aramark Food Services and the Kentucky Proud program. Through the Farm to Campus initiative, the work done by students provides fruits, vegetables, fish and some meats to campus dining facilities, offering a farm-to-table dining experience. Items produced at the farm are also available for sale to the general public throughout the year.
